Eviction Moratoriums Improved Food Security and Decreased Mental Stress during Pandemic

A new study, “COVID-19 Rental Eviction Moratoria and Household Well-Being,” investigates the impact of eviction moratoriums on household outcomes including food security, mental health, and spending. The authors find that eviction moratoriums redirected spending to more immediate needs, such as groceries. Moratoriums also reduced food insecurity and mental stress, particularly among Black households. This paper adds to the growing field of research documenting the positive impacts of eviction moratoriums amid COVID-19.
